Herbal Destination & Voodoo Ride
Herbal Destination and Voodoo Ride, both small growing businesses, were working to expand their distribution channels to include large, national retailers. Each was using barcodes purchased from online barcode sellers, but soon discovered they needed to use the GS1 Company Prefix and other GS1 Standards to conduct business with these mass retailers. They contacted GS1 US—which is authorized in the U.S. to license the GS1 Company Prefix—and now, each business creates U.P.C.s for its products that protect its company’s brand identity as they travel through the supply chain. By using additional GS1 Standards to identify cases and locations as well as share and synchronize data, the companies can start to realize operational benefits and growth.
With help from HarvestMark and GS1 Standards, SunFed has made case- and item-level traceability an integral part of its business and has full visibility of its produce traveling from fields to kitchens.
GS1 US Data Hub | Product (formerly Data Driver) enables smaller size companies to trade products with larger retailers. There is no need to invest in a lot of training on GS1 Standards, since the tool complies with the standards and facilitates the creation of GS1 standard-compliant barcodes.
Print Media developed a GS1 Standards-enabled business process by implementing Global Location Numbers and the GLN Registry™ (now GS1 US Data Hub | Location) for healthcare.
